Flickernoise is a user-friendly VJ application optimized for the Milkymist One and the Milkymist SoC. It renders hardware-accelerated visual effects comparable (and, to some extent, compatible) with those of MilkDrop 1.x, the popular audio visualization plug-in for Winamp. Flickernoise allows the creation of visual patches and their connection with all the interfaces that the Milkymist One provides, thanks to an easy-to-use graphical user interface. The visuals can react to sound and MIDI events. A camera can be connected to create live phantasmagoric images of yourself.
fpgatools is a toolchain for programming flexible programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). The only supported chip at this time is the xc6slx9, a cheap (circa $10 U.S.) but powerful 45nm-generation chip with about 2400 LUTs, block ram, and multiply-accumulate devices. The principles of fpgatools are to reach the maximum physical performance of the chip, to provide fast development cycles, to be an independent toolchain which only depends on other Free Software, and to be a lightweight C implementation without a GUI.
